Hi Sir,

Recommended temperature for commerical D/C at 20-22 dC and humidity at 40-60%,

The objective is not to refrigeration the D/C, but to provide a control environment for your equipments, cooling/air-conditioning and not the BTU

But nowaday, BTU is sometime stated on the operating manual on your equipments, take note if your equipments have special requirements for heat transfer,

As for the ventilation, the ceiling ventilation are from the original building layout, those are not active for the named D/C,

What provided by the named D/C is under-floor ventilation for cooling/air-conditioning, proven concept used by most D/C, not an international standard, but a common practice, or adored standard

Your body will feel hot due to many reason, mainly because your body trying to adapt to the humility and the temperature, that normal

What important is your computers/servers are operating at a safety level in a control environment,

As for the ceiling height, that the original building layout, you need to refer to the maximum load per square feet, just to know the ceiling height, ceiling height don't mean anything,

Have you guys see any sensors above or inside your racks, if not then who is doing the monitoring

I don't really agree with you regards the ceiling height and the centre air-con don't play apart with the DC nowaday.

The learned design concept is the original concept a few years back and the concept is base on the server size a few years back and number of servers in that size can be colo in each rack.

In the past, ppl is colo a server tower in the rack. But now ppl is colo 1U server and a rack can normally colo 38U of servers.

The heat produce by a rack nowaday is very difference and especially during the peak hour.

If the ceiling height is not high enough, where the hot air is going to be trap in before they can be extract out from the DC?

I have physically experiences colo in DC located in shopping centre, commercial buliding and Industry buliding. And I also work in Construction project as M&E co-ordinator before.

And my opinion is, a book is still a book, but actual field experiences do count.

Hi Sir,

I think you have hight expectation on the named D/C, that you start seeing believe, which we are trying to understand from you,

I trust your experience, but I still hope you can open up your mind,

If you have any concern on the D/C, maybe I can assist you, I had done a few D/C projects, and I would like to explore opporunity with you,

Are you able to share your view on the ceiling height, I like to learn

Are you able to share your view on how you manage to colo 32U servers inside your rack, I like to learn

Are you able to share your view on present day D/C standard, and alternative to reduce cost, and maintain thermal comfort inside the racks and the D/C,

I have share the ceiling height.

32U of servers in a rack is norm for D/C and it is nothing to share, but is the heat problem face by hosting companies only.

Google to find out more in expert view regards the problems and alternative solution to reduce cost.

Thermal comfort inside the racks and the D/C is not the latest R&D, but thermal comfort inside the server is what expert tryng to R&D.

Seen you are in this D/C business, why not you share yours experiences on yours D/C project and what is the difficulty?

If can, share the cost of buliting a D/C and is there any code of practise yours have to apply in buliding a D/C in SG?

Can we learn from you what is the cost per rack round?

i just accompanied my friend to webvis. .OMG worst experience ever!!
no chairs.. bad support staff who claims they can't do anything when
we wanted to borrow a cable. they gave us lots of excuses saying
they got no authority etc. And the racks are dusty and warm inside..
they said their aircon recently spoilt.

I believe after long from economic crisis and now is recovery, many businessess will try to increase price to recover their lossess during the crisis and further enhance their services and equipments.

So price increasing is expected, if one try to shift from DC to DC in due to price, I believe he / she will be busy with shifting.

Like Qala also increase their price recently, but after understand from my account manager. I feel that their increase is justify and they still the cheapest of all.

Wish to hear more opinion in this thread, can anybody contribute more info?

I believe that the price will continue to rise. I think we have not seen the worse of it yet. Until starhub gets the cable across to Singapore (From US), then can we really see if the price is coming up or down.

My best bet is that it will go up till then (And probably soar a little more when starhub brings in the cable from US) and after that then will it start dropping.

Just my two cents.

Electricity price going up from 1st Jan 2008!
http://www.singaporepower.com.sg/pub...R26_12402.html

Given the current price trend of real estate, human resource, electricity is all going up, the data center operation cost which closely tied to the above 3 core item is definitely shooting up.

For the bandwidth part, as technology advancement, the same fiber optics cable now can carry more traffic than it used to be from 100Mbps, 1Gbps, 10Gbps or even 100Gbps in production, bandwidth price is definitely moving downwards.

There is no fixed charges, it is a content collaboration programs, it depends on the business partnership between you and starhub and work out the business and revenue model.

We went on a tour of this data center and would rate it as very nicely setup. Their power setup is confidence boosting and their connectivity is pretty decent as well.

Give them a call and they should be quite happy to give you a DC tour.
